Having problems with your Acer Aspire 1804WSMi Notebook ?
Freezing when booting up
\015 Hi,\015\012\015\012I have just bought a second hand acer aspire 1640. Worked fine for a while. Then I started it up one morning and it boots up till after the windows display screen comes on and then freezes. Only the power button light is still on. Cannot get it to go into windows??? \015\012\015\012Please help, thanks\015\012\015\012Steph\015
This maybe a case of a bad boot sector on the hard drive.\015\012\015\012On boot up try pressing F8 to get you in safe mode, right click on your 'C' drive>properties>tools>error check. and let it do a disk check.\015\012\015\012If unable to get in safe mode you will need a copy of Windows to enable you to do a repair by setting your pc to boot from cd in the bios and will ask you to press enter to boot with cd.\015\012\015\012When Windows has installed all set up files, press 'R' for repair and 'NOT ENTER' as this will install windows again formatting the drive.\015\012\015\012When prompted press enter when it asks for admin password(as there won't be one).\015\012\015\012Look down the list for 'Repair MBR', press enter and also 'SCANNOW' as this will scan your drive for errors, press enter.\015\012\015\012Good luck\015\012\015\012Your
